From left to right: Iman (8), Asim (4) and Ibrahim (12). The attack left 11 people from the Ammar, al-Hallaq, and Juma’ families dead. One of the missiles that struck the al-Hallaq house penetrated into the flat of the al-Ammar family below and exploded, killing four children who were watching TV at the time.
“Our life is not the same. Everything changed. We think of them all the time,” Nawal, their mother, explains. “I don’t believe Israel will be held accountable because it has committed so many crimes since 1948 – Deir Yassin and other massacres – and they were never punished,” she adds.
